Master’s programme 'Applied and Interdisciplinary History «Usable Pasts»'
The Department of History was created in 2012. The overarching goal of the department is systematic development of the field of global, comparative, and transnational history as a potent tool of overcoming the limitations of national history canon, fostering interdisciplinary dialogue in the field of social sciences and humanities, and brining new public relevance to historical knowledge. The department mission includes the development of new type of historical undergraduate and graduate education in Russia and pioneering new research fields in Russian historiography in dialogue with the global historical profession.

This workshop was the inaugural research event of the Anthropologies of Art network and digital platform. The workshop sought to map out contemporary anthropological perspectives to art. It built on established approaches in this field such as those of Alfred Gell and Pierre Bourdieu, and on theoretical innovations such as ethnographic conceptualism (Ssorin-Chaikov 2013) or relational aesthetics (Sansi 2014). Paper presenters from Oslo, St Petersburg, Berlin, Barcelona and the UK debated new pathways of anthropological inquiry in this field. A key proposition behind this workshop was the idea that contemporary art theory and practice are increasingly in dialogue with theories of sociality – how we relate to other people to create meaning – and therefore connected to core anthropological interests.
